India team director Ravi Shastri responded to the image that has gone viral on social media buy saying that they do not read newspapers and that the job is only to play cricket.

This is the second time that Bangladesh have used social media to target the Indian side.
This comes after the earlier incident in 2015 when the Bangladesh side had shown utter disrespect towards the Indian cricket team.
A Bangladeshi newspaper has produced a fake 'cutter' advertisement, in which seven Indian cricketers are seen standing with their heads half-shaven.
Bangladesh will be pitted against India in the final of the ongoing Asia Cup T20 match to be played at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka on Sunday.
